The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) is proud to present the 2017 Barry K. Wendt Commitment Award to Doug Palmore, senior vice president of customer and technical services at Luck Companies. He will receive the award during NSSGA’s Annual Convention on March 6.
“We are proud to present our association’s most distinguished individual award to Doug for recognition of his years of service to our industry, his positive work ethic and selfless volunteer leadership,” said Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO.
As a lasting memorial to Wendt, who exemplified commitment to family, career and the industry, NSSGA’s manufacturers and services division established the award to recognize an individual in the industry who is deserving of personal recognition for exhibiting the dedication exemplified by Barry Wendt, both in commitment to the industry and to the community in which they live.
“Doug successfully wears many hats at Luck Companies, and yet he also finds time to use his knowledge and expertise promote sound science and combat over-regulation on behalf of the entire industry,” said Norman Jetmundsen, vice president and associate general counsel at Vulcan Materials Co. “He does not always get the recognition he deserves because he is humble and does not draw attention to himself. He’s a pleasure to know and to work with and he is very dedicated to our industry. I am glad to see that he is being recognized for the many unselfish hours of service to all aggregates operations, Luck Companies, his family and his community.”
